Zer01 Communications has announced it will be displaying its Zer01 Mobile unlimited voice and data mobile plan at the CTIA Wireless 2009 convention in Las Vegas (booth #6363). The new internet pre-paid plan requires no contracts or commitments to sign up and is being offered to mobile users at $70 a month. According to CEO Ben Piilani, Zer01 Mobile uses Veritable Mobile Convergence (VMC) technology from the Unified Technologies Group, that enables data transmitting and voice communications through a VoIP system and onto a virtual private network that accesses the internet.
Users can obtain the plan with either their current mobile phone, or a new phone purchased from the online store, and require roughly five minutes for the company to update the phone's SIM card to their network. Zer01 Mobile will initially be available on Windows Mobile smartphones, with support for other devices such as Blackberry, Andriod, and iPhone, to be released in the future.
Zer01 Mobile will be on display at the CTIA Wireless from April 1-3.
